LibriVox recording of The Evil Guest by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. Read by Cathy Barratt
Le Fanu’s inimitable style continues with The Evil Guest, a murder mystery fraught with dark imagery and mysterious characters. An unwanted guest visiting a dreary and isolated home is murdered; the thriller leads the reader down countless ‘dead’ ends before revealing the identity of the guilty party. (Introduction by Cathy Barratt)

Kind of a sad story
I really can't add too much to the summary without giving away the plot twists. The story points you in many directions. The end is a bit unsatisfying, a few threads are left hanging IMHO, but it is overall a good mystery.
The reader is excellent, and the quality of the recordings is excellent.
